uncomfortable. thank you. and let's applaud all of this year's nominees. [applause] >> with the election behind us and the fiscal cliff right in front of us, i think it's nice just to have an evening when we can focus on what is important, like whether molly ringwald is really here tonight. is she? i trust you all read "the new york times" piece this past week on how tonight is part of a close, visible makeover for the national book awards them article goes on to say the goal is to add more sex appeal to an industry that is not exactly known for it. and there will be signs everywhere of the aspirations to turn this once dowdy event into a glamorous party. from where i stand, looking out at your sexy, sexy faces,-you are post-dowdy. thank you. that's the drinking table. it's fun to tell jokes outside of new york that you're involved with the nba because people start can go you questions about what lebron and kobe are really like. it's really an understandable confusion because writers and professional ballers are incredibly similar. they're both wildly overpaid people, in peak physical condition

during the new year. given the divisions we have seen just in the election. >> even he has talked about some sort of tax reform. he is not the first president to be really bad with this. george bush had a republican congress and he was quite terrible. it was basically his way or the highway. with obama, he has had an attitude of i would just stand back and let the democratic congress do their will. we have this republican congress now, since the 2010 election, he has not done much to reach out or work with them. dagen: is that kind of attitude, how will that get in the way of getting anything done, particularly today? >> well, yeah, obviously, if people are trying to vote on a deal that includes a tax increase, they should just keep the rates down for people in the rest of the brackets and let obama have his, you know, you do not have to vote for a tax increase. it happens with or without you. you do not have to vote for a tax increase in that way. obama has something to worry about here, by the way. the republicans could even lose the next election because of this. he will have to live

the election. he does have an advantage here. he has a larger approval rating than the congress does. but that doesn't mean that we sacrifice principle. sequestration to me is a principle. >> a very important issue. i assume they're going to work out an arrangement that they will delay that sequestration, those automatic defense cuts, at least for a few months. presumably that will -- i assume that will allow you, senator graham, to go ahead -- and you might not be thrilled with this compromise, but if it's 400,000 for individuals, 450,000 for couples, that would be acceptable to you, and let the -- those people earning more than that a year see their tax rates go from 35% to 39.6%? >> hat's off to the president, he won that argument. bowles/simpson eliminated deductions to generate revenue. raising rates is a solution the president came up with, it's not bipartisan, but i would vote for the deal you just described. back to sequestration. we promised the american people in august when we raise theed the debt ceiling by $2 trillion, we would offset that debt ceiling with a dollar for
